Report from Admissions

This fall, we welcomed another great new class of Lawrentians. One of the most ethnically diverse classes we have enrolled in many years—30% identify as students of color and another 10% hail from outside the U.S.—this class, like those before it, continues to bring strong academics and the vast array of multiple interests we have come to expect among Lawrentians. From musicians and athletes to inventors and writers (sometimes all in the same person), this class of Lawrentians is poised to do great things for the next four years.

As always, if you know of any great future Lawrentians we should be recruiting, please let us know about them by using our referral form.

Thank you for your support for Lawrence University.

Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid
